UAVcast

UAVcast is a complete package of software tools that allow users to build a companion computer based on UAV`s using the most popular micro-computers and Mavlink based autopilots.

The Software is designed to help to establish 4g/LTE communication between the UAV and the Ground Control Station software without any additional tools. The software is also made to simplify the process of using companion computers with built-in web interface UAV managing panel. The idea is to have a simple web page for end users to configure the companion computer with a few simple steps and without any UNIX knowledge.
